There aren’t many hit songs with “five” anywhere in the title, but I found five to share in honor of Cinco de Mayo tomorrow. Without looking, can you name any? Two, three or more? All five? One of the five has a melody that was written over 200 years ago. I even found a sixth that mentions 5, but the number itself is nowhere in the title. If you’re a little curious read and listen on.
First, here’s the song that mentions 5 – but it’s not in the title. (… the next plane to london will be boarding in five minutes.)
